If you follow me on twitter you will have seen that last month when I went back to Kent I got some goodies from my friend. One of the goodies was her unwanted Dior Skin Airflash, something she was desperate for me to try!
The Airflash is different to other foundations as it is in aerosol can, a bit different to the pumps that we are used to! I was a bit worried when it came to using this, but you quickly get used to it. The one thing I will say you don’t really get used to is the aerosol smell when applying it. Its strange and something I personally wasn’t used to, but I feel its worth putting up with!
My friend gave me the shade 300, which I was worried wouldn’t match my skin however it does really well! I spray this directly onto my makeup brush 3/4 times and then add it to my face as I usually would with a foundation. I was a little disappointed the first time I used it as I felt where I dotted it on my skin it ‘stained’ slightly, however after going over the area a few times and really working it in it went.
This is not a high coverage foundation, but it is buildable. This is the kind of foundation I want at the moment as my skin is the best its been in months, so I am loving that it just sorts out my colour and pigmentation. It leaves a lovely dewey finish that dosent need powder over the top (on my skin) and it is the first foundation that dosent make me look oily! You can add extra layers to it and concealer blends in to it nicely.
Overall I love this foundation and I’m actually a little annoyed that I’m now going to have to repurchase!! However, there are some negatives. As I mentioned above it does have an aerosol smell to it, which can be a little off-putting when applying it. If you leave the ‘dots’ on your skin for too long it can be hard to shift and blend in to your skin, which makes putting it on a little trickier. I have found that if I add the dots then quickly blend them all just a little it isn’t as bad. And lastly, the bottle/container is coloured so you don’t actually know how much you have left. This can make using it and thinking about repurchasing a little trickier.
I do have to say that I have fallen for this foundation. It is my second Dior Skin foundation, but my first ever one of this type. I love that it gives me light coverage and a little bit more colour as well as lasting throughout the day and not going patchy. Better get saving to get a back up…!
